Celtic are set to announce the signing of David Turnbull.
According to The Scottish Sun, David Turnbull decided on a move to Celtic after speaking to Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson and James McFadden.
It’s been a long and bizarre transfer saga, but Celtic finally appear to be on the verge of securing Motherwell star Turnbull’s signature.
Celtic agreed a £3million deal to sign Motherwell earlier this month, but just days later, claimed that they couldn’t find an agreement with the midfielder.
Celtic pulled out of a move entirely last week, leaving Turnbull to discuss a move to Norwich City, before a stunning U-turn saw him agree to join the Bhoys, as reported by the Daily Record.
The Scottish Sun claim that Celtic are just waiting for news of his medical before being in a position to confirm a move, and it seems that he was urged into the move by a couple of notable names.
Turnbull is represented by the same agency as Liverpool star Robertson, and it’s believed that Turnbull spoke to the Scotland captain about the best step for his career.
A boyhood Celtic fan who initially came up through the Bhoys ranks, Robertson unsurprisingly backed a move to Parkhead, whilst McFadden also played his part.
The Motherwell hero may not have played for Celtic himself but has seemingly told the 19-year-old to make the move to Celtic rather than head straight to England now.
Turnbull will hope that this is the right decision, and Celtic fans should certainly be excited about a move after seeing him hit 16 goals from midfield last season.
Yes, he’ll face major competition for places alongside Ryan Christie, Callum McGregor and Tom Rogic, but Turnbull has a huge future, and should prove to be money well spent by Neil Lennon.
